Paper slips sent home with kids, delivered crumpled and dirty, usually the night before the deadline. Envelopes of cash sent to school in backpacks in the hope that it would make it safely the coordinator.
Then hours of counting money, matching up orders and arranging the details with the sub-shop, pizza place or other fast food favourite. Then delivery of sometimes 500 different orders to be allocated carefully from hand written spreadsheets.
You can see why these were a rare occurrence. The work involved for everyone made it impossible to even consider weekly fun lunches!
Healthy Hunger set out to change all that with a simple to use online ordering system. Accessible by the school coordinators, parents and restaurants and always free for schools to use.
